Soon-to-be ex husband...still technically married, but not together...his ex fiance from before he and I started dating. She says there are unresolved issues between them, he says All issues were fully resolved and she's just psychotic.
I just want to be able to have a peaceful work environment, but the other day, she (Ex-g) goaded another server (S) into calling the manager over something that could have easily been resolved by a quick talk in private.
What happened was...one of S's tables moved to my section, but I didn't see that. I looked up from doing dishes and saw customers that had been seated and served drinks, so I thought someone had set them up for me, as we're supposed to, to help each other out. When I got to the table, she insisted they had moved from her section. Admittedly, I argued with her at first, not sure if she was trying to pull a fast one. But when the customers confirmed they had moved, I said "Okay, that's fine," and walked away. I thought that was that. A couple minutes later, though, she said she was just going to go home if there was going to be a problem. I said, " there's no problem, id just like a head's up if your table moves so there's no confusion." Ex-g overheard us and quite loudly and insistently urged S into calling the manager. This caused the rest of the staff to assume that I was creating a problem, and I was treated like a pariah for the rest of the night.
Since then, the manager and other staff have been listening to whatever crap Ex-g spouts and treating me like I don't do anything, when I'm one of the few who comes to work to work, not to hang out and gossip all shift. The only ones who don't treat me like that are the ones I've worked with from day one. I would have walked away if they weren't there to help me feel a little welcome.
I'd talk to the owners, but the manager is the only person who has any contact with them, so idk how that would go. I'm already looking for a job to fall back on though.
